Hey, I just wanted to say a quick #welcome to the recent Chinwag arrivals!
Chinwag's reason for existing is to provide communication tools for people, which is something I've always been interested in. I kind of target #Australian users, but welcome anyone from anywhere.
Please read our rules: https://social.chinwag.org/about/more
There's a basic guide to using Chinwag Social here: https://chinwag.im/social/
If you have any questions or concerns hit me up!
As for me, I'm running this because communication technology interests me and I've been chatting to people around the world using 1s and 0s since about 1989.
I'm a professional #sysadmin. I've been working in the field for nearly 25 years and I've been reasonably competent at it for about 10.
I'm a big fan of the old SAGE code of #ethics and operate by it all the time when working, including my hobby projects like this one: https://www.usenix.org/system-administrators-code-ethics
I hope we can all make some new friends here!
@mike aww the chinwag.im rules were better :P
“Don’t make me come over there” 😅
@mike the link you posted seems to share some points with cyber security ethics. It was definitely interesting to read, especially since I am going into cyber security and might end up as a system admin on my way to becoming a white hat hacker.
@mike Thanks for having us. 🙂
@badrihippo thanks! It's a bit of a passion project that's been ongoing for a long time, keeps me interested. 😀
Always happy to help out!
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
